    Default Kenda Small Block 8, Maxxis Crossmark, Maxxis Larsen TT Tyre ST?

    Hey

    My tires are wearing out, and I'm thinking of getting new ones, what do you think of the Kenda Small Block 8, the Maxxis Crossmark and the Maxxis Larsen TT Tyre ST? Which one should I get? I'll probably be using it for DJ, 4X, general riding from A to B, and little bit of DH.

    Thanks

    roll really nice on hardpack, surprisingly grippy with a bit of body english and foot out action ... knobs are too small for rough trails

    The DH I'd be doing would be noting hard or technical. I'd mainly use them for DJ/4X and riding around the streets. My front tire an a Maxxis Lopes Bling Bling Dual and by back tire in a CST Caballero COMP (I'm just saying whats on the tire).

    I have Maxxis Larsen TT's and they're my favorite tyre for everything I reckon.
    Grippy :) Roll Fast when pumped up to a high PSI as well :)

    Would you say the Maxxis Larsens are a good all rounder? (Which one do you have? the Maxxis Larsen TT Tyre 60a, or the Maxxis Larsen TT Tyre ST?) And with the small block 8 how do you classify rough trails? I'll try and get some pics of the local trails (when I get better) see what you think.
